those echos as far as vladimir putin is concerned. all of his actions for years have indicated his desire to rebuild the russian empire, the so-called near abroad balance particulars invasion of georgia, mald maldova. it's clear that maybe the president has been naive about vladimir putin and his ambitions and we're seeing the commitment, an absolute belief that ukraine is part of russia and he's not going to let it go and that is something we are going to have to understand in our relations with vladimir putin. >> i know you've been briefed about what is going on. in your opinion, is there an invasion that has already started? in other words, what's the latest information you're getting about russian troops in crimea or other parts of ukraine? >> especially ukraine, troops have come in, moving out of a very vital base of sevastopol into the area. they have taken control of the two airports and these people are paramilitary. as you discussed earlier, it's not going to be russian tanks. it's going to be russian special forces, special operations people, fsb that will basically be ta

, there is more compelling evidence of just how spoiled vladimir putin's russia is. putin's games have them all. the government's hostility to the gay community has been well documented. more protesters were arrested in st. petersburg. this is routine stuff in a country where political rivals and powerful businessmen have been jailed. this man, putin jailed for ten years on tax evasion before pardoning him late last year. those who seek to report on these crackdowns have been silenced. 313 journalists in russia died or disappeared between the years 1993 and 2009. criticism from the west is unlikely to change anything in russia as the new york's david rem nick explains putin is not interested in the contemporary requirements of human rights or seating true independents to the courts. democracy is not in his interest. stability and development, those are his themes first and last. joining me now is the "new york times" white house correspondent, peter baker. it's always great to see you. i do think we have a sort of media fail here in terms of documenting the true abuses inside russia, w
